What is your favorite way to wrap presents?
Shiny Paper? Print wrapping paper? Seasonal wrapping paper? SUnday comics? Gift bag? Art paper? No gift wratp?
You have struck a nerve. I am the chief wrapper, and I am the least qualified to do so. I use the cheapest paper I can find in a multi-pack, usually at Wal-Mart. You do not want to waste the shiny stuff (especially foil) on me. After boxing the gifts and taping the boxes shut (I have children who like to snoop), I pick up a roll at random. I exhaust that roll and go on to the next. I try to cut in straight lines, but the cheap paper doesn't have grid-lines on the back. I do not use bags, though we have several DOZEN, because we have several HUNDRED department store boxes in boxes under the stairs. Yes, this is redundant. We use BIG boxes to store LITTLE boxes. If the item is too big to wrap--or if I have run out of paper (not usually)--I affix a single bow. I cannot say this is my favorite way to wrap--it's the ONLY way I wrap.
Gift bags are my favourite, especially at Christmas when there's lots to wrap. It's convenient, quick, and eco friendly, as the bags can be re-used.

Do you put gifts under the tree as you wrap them? or do you sneak them under the tree on Christmas Eve??

When you run out of wrapping paper, what can you use to wrap a gift?Mom always used the comic pages from the Sunday paper. What other wraps have you used in a pinch?

Tomorrow is Christmas day already but my husband did not wrap yet his gift for me! It is in our room laying inside the box. I already know what it is because he asked me what I wanted lol! But I still want it wrapped! Do I need to ask him? What will I do?
